A few days ago we've enjoyed a lunch of moules and frites for the 4th time in six months at this orchid-adorned, quaint little restaurant situated across the street from the sea. Prompt service, a warm welcome, and excellent fresh seafood has been consistent. The interior is a little tired but the hospitality and excellent food more than make up... More

I really enjoyed my dinner here. The service was prompt and attentive. My seafood salad was amazing and the coq au vin was very tender and excellent. Dessert was nice too! All in a great meal, I do recommend! :)

The restaurant is nicely located and looks good. But, the food itself was pretty poorly prepare, overcooked meal, lazy presentation that was not up to par with the pricing. And although we were splurging, service was inatentive and we had to spend an exceptionally long time for a diner. This is a poor ambassador of French cuisine.

I have eaten here for a number of years now. Whilst the menu has not changed the service is very good and the food always well cooked with plenty of choice

We booked a table online as we had tried a couple of nights to get in but was always too busy. The evening we finally went we were actually ignored for about 15 minutes before even being offered a menu or asked what we would like to drink. When we finally did get a menu after getting their attention to... More

Great mussels, big portions, really recommended. However, the staff speaks very little english so be ready to use body language. Location is great, right across from the beach. :)

My dish was just average, but the mussels were delicious. The service was pretty good. They forgot our bread and it took quite a while to get our check even though we asked for it several times.

One of the prettier places on the Med seafront. However, the food for the price was only okay and the main dishes pretty basic. The starters and desserts were quite good. The staff were less friendly than most of the places we have been to on the Med; but perhaps that was due to their serving our pre-dinner drinks well... More

We happened to lunch here by chance. The food was of great quality and portions overall were very generous. Waiting times can be a bit long, but other 'local' people there seemed to be aware of this. Our waitress was super nice even though we didn't speak french and she didn't speak english... Tip: don't leave without trying the desserts,... More

At first glance La Caravelle doesn't look anything special - we walked right past it initially. We came back, checked the menu and then had a really good meal. We enjoyed avocado and prawns, soupe de poisson, turkey, grilled lamb and sea food vol au vent. We had a nice bottle of rose from Aix de Provence and for dessert... More
